Turan happy at Barca, not thinking about leaving – agent

Turan happy at Barca, not thinking about leaving – agent

Arda Turan has no intention of leaving Barcelona this summer, according to his agent Ahmet Bulut.
Turan, 30, has been linked with moves to China, England and Italy in recent months, with Turkish media suggesting Barca are prepared to listen to any offers which arrive.

However, Bulut says that the Turkey international wants to remain at the Camp Nou and hopes to be able to honour his Barca contract, which runs until 2020.
“Arda is going to continue at Barcelona,” Bulut is quoted as saying by AS. “He is not thinking about anything else. He is really happy there.”
Turan joined Barcelona in 2015 from Atletico Madrid in a deal worth more than €30 million, but has failed to establish himself as a regular in Luis Enrique’s side.
After being unable to make his debut until January of 2016 due to the transfer ban the club were serving at the time, he struggled to make an impression in his first season in Catalonia.
Turan has improved this season, though, and has scored 13 goals in all competitions, including two hat tricks — one in the Copa del Rey and another in the Champions League.
But despite his improvement in form, he has still struggled to break into a side which boasts a front three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, and recently saw his progress curtailed by a groin injury.
Barca sporting director Robert Fernandez hinted in April that the club would be willing to sell Turan in the summer.
“We’re not aware of any offers from China [for Turan], but if one arrives we will study it,” Fernandez said.
